thanks guys, nothing wrong with two people if you got em. I always try to get stuff done by myself if possible. The way I figured the motor will be pulled multiple times during the build so may as well make it easy.

An easy contraption for two people could be the flat stock that bolts to motor with like a 2' or 3' long 1"x1" welded to it, basically a cheater bar to grab from each side.

One thing I've gathered from reading this thread is that everyone seems to be talking about installing the motor yourself (i.e. one person installation).

What about two people? I always saw in the biker build off shows one person would "hug" the V-twin and carry it to the frame while a second person would reach through the frame from the left side, grab the engine's output shaft, and guide the engine as it's installed from the right side. Any merits to this method?
thats my method, find a friend, no dingle dangle swinging around skinning up paint work banging up chrome. 3 minutes and it's sitting in the frame.

Do you know what a brand new 100" S&S engine sounds like rolling around on a cement floor?
